Did you know that chewing gum takes five years to decompose? An aluminium can 200-500 years? What happens to milk cartons, paper handkerchiefs, fruit peel or plastic bags after they're used? Waste is inevitable, but must be done carefully. Otherwise we contribute to smothering the environment and wasting more and more primary resources. If you change your habits by sorting your waste and thinking about consumption and purchases you can reduce the amount of rubbish you make and the resources you waste.
